How does LipoCryo Work?
Ever wonder how you can lose those stubborn fats around your arms, thighs, hips and tummy? Lipocryo is a precisely controlled process using the technology of cryolipolysis that simply targets, cools, and eliminates fat cells without damage to the surrounding skin and tissues.
After one treatment, your body will naturally eliminate these crystallized fat cells after they are broken down.
But How does LipoCryo work?
A special transducer (suction handpiece) is positioned over selected area of the body. Candidate may feel a firm pull where the suction handpiece is being placed. Its vacuuming action captures the fat tissues of the treated area, while the selective cryotechnology helps to cool it.
The fat cells in the subcutaneous tissues (under dermis) are mostly saturated fatty acids rich cells which are highly sensitive to the cold exposure from the device, while other contiguous elements such as blood vessels, peripheral nerves, melanocytes, fibrocytes, or poor fatty cells are much less sensitive. This characteristic allows fats to be selectively eliminated without damage to surrounding tissues.
Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells will be broken down and naturally eliminated from the body.
How many sessions are needed?
Depending on the thickness of the fat tissues and the desired result, 1 to 3 sessions may be required. Ideally, the interval between sessions is about 45 days.
What will the result be and when will it show?
Depending on the initial adipose tissue thickness, the average percentage fat loss will be 20%. Some results may be visible after 15 days, but usually a period of 6 weeks is required for the main results to show. This will be the point of time to determine whether another session is necessary.
How long is the application?
According to the size of the treatment area, it may be necessary to perform more than a single application to cover the whole area.
For instance, two applications may be needed for abdominal area, one application for each "love handles”, and two for lower back . Each application will last from 20 to 30 min, depending on the thickness of the fat tissue. Therefore, the whole session can last from 20 to 180 min.
Who is the ideal candidate for LipoCryo procedure?
The ideal candidate is not the obese patient, but one who wants to reduce fat around specific areas, such as on the abdomen, flanks, lower back, arms.
What does the patient feels during and after the session?
The procedure is not painful. A slight pulling tension can be felt close to the treated area due to the suction effect, followed by an intense cold sensation around the area, mainly at the beginning of the procedure. After the session, there will be some redness and numbness on the treated area which can last a couple of hours after the session. Some candidates may have slight bruises that will reside within a few days. The patient can resume to normal activities immediately after the treatment without any discomfort.
Main difference compared with other procedures?
LipoCryo reduces fat tissue effectively and naturally, without the traumatic experience of invasive or surgical method such as liposuction. There is also no risk of damaging the surrounding tissues which can occur with radiofrequencies, focalized ultrasounds or lasers.
Are the results definitive?
The fat cells are eliminated by the body's natural metabolism. With regular exercise and diet, the long term results should be sustainable.
